BRIEF | Work with Southern Seawater Alliance to design
a world-class desalination plant that sensitively fits into its
BUILD TIME | Stage One completed September 2011,
Stage Two due for completion early 2013.
FEATURES | When Stage Two is complete, more than
half the water required for the Perth metropolitan area
will come from climate independent desalination, with
two-thirds coming from this plant.
PHOTOGRAPHY | Robert Frith & Corey Littlefair.
LOCATION | Binningup, WA.
Impressively, the energy required to power the
building and plant is offset by the Mumbida Wind
and Greenough River Solar Farms.
Stage One of the project officially opened in
September 2011, three months ahead of schedule
and under budget.
The design has won a slew of awards,
including a 2012 Australian Institute of Architects’
Architectural Award, a 2012 Master Builders
Excellence Award, and the international 2012
Global Water Award’s Desalination Plant of the
Year, and was the 2011 Engineering Excellence
Awards Overall Winner.
